How Often Should I Clean My Gutters?

Having blocked guttering can be a real nightmare. Obstructions from dead leaves and debris can cause great havoc if left to accumulate. However, cleaning your guttering isn’t something that is at the forefront of people’s minds when they think of property maintenance. It’s easy to see if a couple of roof tiles are missing or have a problem with erosion, yet gutters are hidden from view, with the problem only visible when it’s too late.

Having free-flowing and clear guttering on your property keeps things working how they should be, without it, it could cause serious consequences for your property. To keep on top of the build-up, it’s advised to keep your gutters cleared by having them professionally cleaned.

It can be difficult to decide when to have your gutters cleaned on your home or business property as context is key. If your property is in a leafy suburb in the country, you will need to be cleaning your gutters more than if your property is in an urban built-up area. Experts suggest that your gutters should be cleaned at least once a year either after Autumn or early spring. Again, if you’re building is in an area where there is a high potential for blockages such as leaves, bird nests, and debris, then you’ll need to have your gutters checked and cleaned more regularly.

Why You Need to Clean Your Gutters.

The consequences of leaving your guttering to gain more debris from dry leaves, sticks, bird nests, etc. can be dire for your property. After a long dry summer, a sudden downpour of rain can cause your gutters to quickly overflow and cause damage to your roofs, fascia and drainage.

Gutters can actually grow mould if left without removal and cleaning, which can be dangerous for the property, environment, and residents’ health. Mould grows when stagnant rainwater is left to fester on decomposing leaves and debris.

When your gutters overflow regularly, your roofing and fascias will decay due to erosion and mould from bacteria-ridden rainwater, a consequence of long-term negligence. Not to mention, the increase of matter in your guttering and regular overflows of water can cause your guttering to become structurally unsound, leading to a collapse.

Many residents will opt to clean their gutters themselves with a ladder. However, at AMac Window Cleaning, we strongly recommend that people do not do this for health and safety reasons. It can be incredibly dangerous and cause serious harm.
